The Last Four Books I Read

I read a lot of books a little chic lit but mainly thrillers and murders I read about two to three books a week so some of the books are from charity shops and some I pick up while in Tesco’s I keep meaning to put up more book reviews but I always forget so here are the last four books read.


Going start with the chic-lit The Starter Wife by Gigi Levangie Grazer I got this for about euro in the charity shop so Gracie’s husband Kenny who is a semi famous Hollywood studio executive dumps her by cell phone a few months before there ten year anniversary Gracie never thought she would be a starter wife but Kenny has up-graded to a young pop star Gracie than moves to Malibu and surprise surprise meets a mysterious man who saves her from drowning and she also goes on a date with Kenny’s boss ok trying to not give too much away about this book. I did like this book but I didn’t love it I didn’t really love any of the characters I felt like Gracie got over Kenny very fast and the fact that she had a child with him and he kind of made her homeless really isn’t nice and Hollywood sounds like horrible place where no one’s face moves because they all have Botox and facelifts now one thing about this book it made me ask myself a question about myself I can’t really tell you the question because it gives the book away but I don’t think I could? I would give this book 6/10


Another chic lit I don’t think I Purchased this book not really sure where it came from it’s the devil wears Prada by Lauren Weisberger I think everyone knows the film which I would of liked a lot more if Anne Hathaway wasn’t in it I just didn’t like her for the part. I liked this book a lot more than the film just in case you haven’t seen the film or heard of it, it’s about Andrea who gets a job as the assistant of Miranda Priestley the feared editor of the most fashionable magazine in the world Runway but Andrea doesn’t know anything about fashion she has never heard of Runway and Miranda who is an evil boss who would give Cruella de Vil a run for her money but I know what it’s like to work for a mad person as I have done for many years and I know what it’s like trying to be a mind reader and being terrified of going into her office but I didn’t understand her boyfriend and best friend issue with her not being able to take calls and asking her to be available for call at 3.30 its stupid I am sorry but you can’t take personal calls when in work some of the stuff I did laugh out loud at and I could relate a lot to some of it believe me. I would give this book an 8/10


This is a thriller Grave Doubts by Elizabeth Corley there is a serious of these but I have only read this one and to me you could pick it up straight away, Sergeant Louise Nightingale acts as a decoy to lure a sexual predator out of hiding but he is only the pupil and his master is still out there but Louise or the police force do not know this Louise has been traumatized by this and also has a family tragedy to deal with so Louise decides to take leave and go to her remote family home but than a serial killer starts terrorizing the country but Louise is cut off from the outside world she has turned off her phone, no internet or T.V and her colleague DCI Andrew Fenwick needs to find her and also prove that the right man is behind bars and that he has a partner I really really liked this book when reading these type of books I always ask myself if I was kidnapped or murdered weather I would be happy with this police officer and his investigation and yes if anything thing happens to me I want DCI Andrew Fenwick on the case lol. I would give this book 10/10 I couldn’t put it down.


Bones of the Lost by Kathy Reichs I picked this up in Tesco’s last week I love bones on TV and I read one of her earlier books before and enjoyed it ok first of all this is nothing like Bones. Dr Temperance Brennan is nothing like the TV character and her daughter is all grown up and she is divorced WTF. So a teenage girl’s body is found on a highway and inside her purse is an ID card of a local businessman who died in a fire a few months ago but who is this girl and where she has some from this book extends from South America to Afghanistan. Ah this book it was bad it was so unbelievable its shocking everything added up to nicely at the end to the point that it was just really unbelievable and it kind of didn’t make sense ok I will try and explain this Dr Brennan goes to Afghanistan about a different matter while there a special needs girl slips something in her pocket ok this girl didn’t know who she was but just happened to out of all the hundreds of people there give it to the right person it just doesn’t add up to me. I give this book 3/10.
